We are the Charities and Communities Coordinators, supporting Norland students and staff in charitable and community activities.
It’s exciting to think how much potential we have, with all our skills and knowledge, to support and contribute to the local and wider community. Last academic year (2018-19), over £6,500 was donated by Norland to charities through our fundraising!
